Do you know you should take at least two minutes to properly brush your teeth? Most people do not come even close to that. All we do is give a hasty scrub before going to slumberland or dash out of the door to perform our daily activities.
So how should we be brushing our teeth? Here are the best and easiest ways that you should remember the next time you brush your teeth.
HOW TO BRUSH YOUR TEETH
Flossing is not a common regime in many households but it should be done after every meal. So how do you do it the proper way?
WHAT TYPE OF TOOTHBRUSH SHOULD YOU USE?
Professional dentists recommend soft-bristled brushes. They are the best type of toothbrushes for removing plaque from your teeth. As for young children, parents are advised to use the Small-headed brushes since they can fit into their smaller mouths and can gently handle their delicate teeth.
Also, always remember to replace your toothbrushes once tear and wear begin to show or after every six months. Also, change your toothbrushes once you have had a cold. This is because the toothbrush bristles may be harboring germs.
How Much Toothpaste Should One Use?
You must use toothpaste that’s right for you. Use approximately three-quarters of the size of your toothbrush and one that is good for your teeth.
Although mouthwash is not a real substitute for brushing of teeth, it actually does play an important role in oral health. Just like toothpaste, mouthwashes come in different varieties all depending on what every individual prefers.
When buying a mouthwash, one is advised to buy one without alcohol. The reason is due to the alcohol drying up the mouth thus making it more cavity-prone. Therefore, mouthwashes like Listerine total care is highly recommended as it contains fluoride and is alcohol-free.
